A person's wedding should be the happiest event in their life. Not so for one bride who receives a note shortly before the wedding saying the person she is marrying is a serial killer. With the wedding in full swing, she must make a choice to believe the note or to pass it off as a stupid prank. But when she notices her groom acting rather odd, she wonders if there is truth behind the note's mortifying words. Written by bioguyver43

Is there a more appropriate word than "Sucks"?
13 August 2008 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

This episode falls apart in nearly every way possible. The characters overreact to everything. The final revelation is anything but surprising, and yet, once we know it, nothing we've seen before makes any sense. Some mysterious characters' motivations are never explained. In short, the entire script plays out like a poorly conceived "gotcha" that strains credulity at every turn. You persevere to the end hoping that at least the explanation will offer something of a payoff, but everything just crumbles like dry mud.

Nor does the direction help in the least. The characters are either annoying or unlikable. Humorous moments are thrown in with no rhyme or reason. We cut to commercial seemingly every three minutes. And worst of all, THERE'S NO FEAR! There have been some entertaining entries in the series, but this is not one of them. It feels like a student film based on a high-schooler's screenplay. Skip it.
